* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' referenced this by starting [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming all but a handful of episode titles]] with the words "The One (With/Where)...", the exceptions being the pilot and the series finale, along with a few shows called "The One After...". Additionally, the pilot has an alternate title; it is now listed on Website/IMDb as "The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate". Creator/{{Netflix}} and the Season 1 DVD set also use that title. Wiki/TheOtherWiki still calls it "The Pilot". The final episodes is titled, logically enough, "The Last One". The reason for this is exactly the one seen above in the trope description: so the episode can be discussed in informal conversation without the need to remember the title.
